Steven Lawless has returned to Motherwell on a permanent deal.
The academy graduated has signed until the end of the 2021/22 season, coming back to the club where he made his professional debut in 2011.
He will go into the squad for the visit of Rangers on Sunday.
“It’s great to be back,” said the forward, who wear the number 14 jersey.
“It means a lot to me to be coming back to the club. I’m ready to get going and play my part in trying to get the team up the table.”
The 29-year-old joined Burton in the summer after a successful two-year spell at Livingston, where he made 75 appearances in the Premiership.
Prior to that, Lawless was a mainstay in the Partick Thistle team who spent five years in the top flight with him in the side, playing 228 times.
His career at Motherwell prior to that saw him score on his debut in a 4-0 League Cup win at Clyde in August 2011, making two appearances in claret and amber and spending time during his development at Albion Rovers.
“Steven will add creativity to the team,” manager Graham Alexander said. “We’re delighted to get him on board.
“He can help us at the top end of the pitch, being that link between the defensive side of the game and the forwards.
“He’s got good guile, the experience of playing up here and obviously was here as a young boy.
“When I spoke to him, his want to be here was a big pull for me as well. We want players who want to be here. He’s certainly shown that aspiration.”
